Ubercloud Posts 2018 Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies

Our friends at the UberCloud have published their 2018 Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies. “The Annual UberCloud Compendium of Case Studies is out! This is the 5th edition of this set of case studies relating to the world of Technical Computing. This year’s collection features case studies based on 13 select UberCloud Experiments, and the whole project is sponsored once again by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel.”

Where Ready Nodes are the Optimal Choice

The perennial question for IT asset acquisition is whether to build or consume, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer to the question. Individual components provide the maximum flexibility, but also require the maximum of self support. Reference architectures provide the recipe and guidance, but the customer still has the responsibility for making the system work.

Network Switch Configuration with Dell EMC Ready Nodes

Storage networks are constantly evolving. From traditional Fibre Channel to IP-based storage networks, each technology has its place in the data center. IP-based storage solutions have two main network topologies to choose from based on the technology and administration requirements. Dedicated storage network topology, shared leaf-spine network, software defined storage, and iSCSI SAN are all supported. Hybrid network architectures are common, but add to the complexity.

Determining Where & How to Adopt Machine Learning Technology

The is the final entry in a five-part insideHPC series that takes an in-depth look at how machine learning, deep learning and AI are being used in the energy industry. Read on for help determining where and how to adopt machine learning technology in your business. 

Networking Dell EMC Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct Ready Nodes

Dell EMC Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct Ready Nodes are built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, which provide the storage density and compute power to maximize the benefits of Storage Spaces Direct. “They leverage the advanced feature sets in Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Edition to deploy a scalable hyper-converged infrastructure solution with Hyper-V and Storage Spaces Direct. And for Microsoft server environments, S2D scales to 16 nodes in a cluster, and is a kernel-loadable module, (with no RDMA iWarp or RoCE needed) which is a low risk approach to implementing an S2D cluster.”

Computing Environments Options for Energy Exploration and Monitoring

This is the fourth entry in a five-part insideHPC series that takes an in-depth look at how machine learning, deep learning and AI are being used in the energy industry. Read on to learn more about computing environments options for energy exploration and monitoring. 

Exploring Dell EMC Networking for vSan

This is the second entry in an insideHPC guide series that explores networking with Dell EMC ready nodes. Read on to learn more about Dell EMC networking for vSan.

Edge Computing Proves Critical for Drilling Rigs, Pipeline Integrity

This is the third entry in a five-part insideHPC series that takes an in-depth look at how machine learning, deep learning and AI are being used in the energy industry. Read on to learn how edge computing is playing a role in operating drilling rigs, ensuring pipeline integrity and more. 

How Do I Network vSAN Ready Nodes?

Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers that have been pre-configured, tested and certified to run VMware vSAN. This post outlines how to network vSan ready nodes. “As an integrated feature of the ESXi kernel, vSAN exploits the same clustering capabilities to deliver a comparable virtualization paradigm to storage that has been applied to server CPU and memory for many years.”

Energy Companies Embrace Deep Learning for Inspections, Exploration & More

This is the second entry in a five-part insideHPC series that takes an in-depth look at how machine learning, deep learning and AI are being used in the energy industry. Read on to learn how energy companies are embracing deep learning for inspections, exploration and more.
